    Dont know why you are deliberately being obstinate here.

    It is a dedicated base speaker... that improves overall sound of the system. Our Alienware skipped it for space for other things.

    Some do it well. Other don't.

    @Papusan although Logan Wade is "technically" correct lol

    You need to connect with didpaly port to get 240 hz. The monitor recognise the port you are using, and limit the hz to 60 on HDMI connection.

    In all fairness I did place a disclaimer in my original comment as to "my" definition of a subwoofer.

    Anytime I can be obstinate with @Papusan is a good opportunity for a challenging debate/discussion that may result in learning something new. That is meant as a compliment.

    You're definitely right (when looking at your definition) but if we do it the wikipedia (most verified) way @Papusan pulls on the shorter end of the stick: "A subwoofer (or sub) is a woofer, or a complete loudspeaker, which is dedicated to the reproduction of low-pitched audio frequencies known as bass and sub-bass."

    Wikipedia is a fake dictionary/encyclopedia :p No offense, but by that basic definition I can call a modified PVC pipe a subwoofer and everyone would look at me like I'm nuts. I mean, people look at me like I'm nuts anyway, but that's not the point here.

    A subwoofer is a woofer driver used only for the lowest-pitched part of the audio spectrum. Typically under 200hz for consumer prducts, 100hz for professionial live sound, and under 80hz for THX approved systems. To accurately reproduce very low bass notes without unwanted resonances (typically from cabinet panels), subwoofer systems must be solidly constructed and properly braced to avoid unwanted sounds of cabinet vibrations. As a result, good subwoofers are typically quite heavy. (also from Wikipedia)

    I though it was more appropriate for the laptop interior (circuitry, fans, vents...). In any case, for dust could be a good solution, but I suppose you will need something more rough for fingerprints or stains

    no one would really want that quality sub in a laptop though surely these gaming laptops are heavy enough as it is with a proper high spec sub it would need wheels

    dont get me wrong if you could get that kind of sub without the weight and id definitely want one i pay extra for the upgrades in cars for inbuilt subs love a decent one but not sure the weight would be worth it in a laptop
